KITES- THE MOVIE REVIEW

Finally, I watched ‘Kites’ tonight. After a lot of hype and media attention the expectations were certainly high, and as I entered the theatre I was filled with super excitement. Now its 2a.m. post-screening of the ‘Kites’ and I’m still humming the songs of the movie, starting all the way from the exit of the theatre followed by my way back to home in my car and even after that till I started writing this movie review. The music of the movie is so melodious, and you start liking it even more when you have watched the movie. Hrithik Roshan, the super star looked like a Greek God with his well chiseled body. His dancing style, his acting, and his stunts nothing disappointed, he was so immaculate and no doubt, he played a master stroke. Barbara Mori, didn’t disappoint either. She looked gorgeous as the Mexican girls are, but her acting, her stunts, and her screen presence certainly tumbled many a hearts in the audiences. Yet the real show-stealer for me was the love. The love between Barbara Mori and Hrithik Roshan is depicted so well in the movie, the chemistry between both the actors came out with so much perfection. I felt like fallin in love all over again.

The movie is well made, it’s been crafted so well that I didn’t feel like watching a regular Bollywood movie, but for me the ‘Kites’ was like a Hollywood movie. I think it’s the first time ever when Bollywood has succeeded in making a movie that is of International standards, which can be watched by audiences all across the globe. A Special applause for the makers of the ‘Kites’, they have just created a movie, which India can proudly say- it’s an Indian movie for the global audiences. The picturization and the locations of the ‘Kites’ were a visual pleasure. Hrithik’s final scene in the movie quiet well justified why there was a buzz about his Jesus like looks in the tinsel town of Hollywood.

Overall, it’s a big thumps up for the ‘Kites’. I’m thrilled to see Hrithik Roshan in the movie and for the directors around the world here is one very special bollywood actor who is no less than a Tom Cruise or Mel Gibson. I’m sure Hrithik’s Kite is going to fly high till it reaches the western doors of Hollywood, before we soon hear that he is doing an International project. To sum up everything in one shot- “ Kites” is wonderful, the movie is unique, it’s an International movie and I loved it!!

P.S. This is my first ever movie review, I’m not good at it but the Kites forced me to share what I felt J… And Karan Johar this review is NOT from the critics, finally there are audiences. So, Just Spread The Love!!

Sandeep T said...

Yes VIVEK... I can't agree it's your first review..You really described quite well!!!
I would say .. "KITES IS ARTIST'S FANTASY"

Vivek Nanda said...

Thanks Abhishek for your special comments. I accept your opinion, but why are you so angry with me ?? Come on dude, I just shared what I feel, its a free world, isn't it? :)
Spread the Love, forget the anger!!

Vivek Nanda said...

Wow Sandeep you summoned it really well- Its indeed is an artist's fantasy, and yes its my first review only, thanks for visiting :)

Vivek Nanda said...

Thanks Sup, Vishal and couple of Anonymous friends..thanks for sharing your thoughts :)

ALI said...

I saw Kites yesterday I'm sure it ain't everyones cup of tea, But it sure entertained me, Hrithik did a great job, He looked amazing and his dance moves are ''dance floor killers'', Barbara was stunning as well innocent face with a hot body the perfect doll, I hope Hrithik works with Hollywood, I'm sure he'd be great in movies such as, Alexander, Troy, Clash of the Titans ...etc.

Anyways great review well brought up and I agree its a global hit ''figers crossed''

Vivek Nanda said...

Thanks Ali for sharing your views about the Kites, and I'm glad to find you my side :). Yes, you rightly mentioned that Hrithik will be a perfect actor for the role in movies like Troy, Alexander etc. Hoping Kites to be a global hit:).
Once again thanks for the visit here.

Shilpa said...

Its a bakwaas movie....I didnt feel the love at all...no emotions, no feelings....no nothing. Did not shed a single tear for the tragedy. Hrithik overacts and Barbara only flashes her teeth. Also its high time the movie makers should shut up about the 'global audience' crap..good for them if it is doing well overseas, Indians hated it..and Hrithik please accept the fact and move on.

Shailendra Kumar said...

Its really a good review of Kites and upto the mark.I liked Kites very much.It was like watching something you love the most.You get angry when there is break (intermission) or the show come to an end.

Abhishek Jha said...

Have watched all of Hrithik Movies first show, did watch the Kites with family on Thursday night and as I reviewed this on 20 different sites, this movie is NOT for typical bollywood masala like Main Hoon naa and other cheap/dual meaning comedy romance. This is a class movie, and you can feel the efforts put by the team in making of this classical. Well, cannot say much about HR as he does not need to prove himself to anyone but Barbara was so cute and innocent, I dared to appreciate about her to my wife and believe me she was not jealous but she felt the same. Her eyes and smile says a billion words about her deep love with the character J.

Thanks Basu, Roshans for making such a class movie.

Vivek Nanda said...

@Shilpa, I agree with your opinion but why to say that "Indians hates it", I'm sure you would agree with me that you cannot give such a generic statement on behalf of all Indians because if there has been critics there has been a lot of Indian admirers as well, and to be really frank, it's been a mixed response.

Vivek Nanda said...

@Shailendra, thanks for liking the review, I'm glad you found it of use :)

Vivek Nanda said...

@Abhishek, thanks for reading the review. Its nice to hear that you have reviewed the Kites on 20 different websites and more importantly, I'm glad to find out that you found this review in accordance with yours :). Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

KVRaman said...

Hi: Kites is an outstanding entertainer. Tho romance is not as chilling as was in Kaho Na Pyar Hai with Amisha but Hrithik has done som hot romance with Barbara. No films of the Roshans has failed. Rakesh Roshan is a volatile director and understands the pulse of the public. Big difference between Rakesh Roshan and Anurag Basu. KVRaman

KVRaman said...

Hi. Waiting for comments. KVRaman

Priya said...

well the movie was nice..was different from the typical bollywood movie..
The problem this movie has faced is switching on and off with the present and past and that is what actually made the audience confused..
Was almost in tearss when i saw barbaara ending up her life....songs were really nice and what i liked is the songs between the scenes...which actuaaly describe the emotion
Although barbara was speaking spanishhh but belive me that is the best thing that can happen to this movie..i know indian audience will be difntly tired of reading the subtitlesss.....she was very funny and look so innoccentt...
all the cast and crew were perfect in their own role..
loved the movieee
Priya

Rohit said...

Thanks Vivek for sharing honest reviews. Kites is an amazing and satisfying experience. Who says Kites is not liked by Indians. I am a proud Indian and I loved Kites. People should upgrade their mind sets to accept something honest and original. Even the switching b/w past n present was not confusing at all. The cinematography of the movie is excellent, so as the narration. Hrithik and Amir are by far the best actors today. Kites may have failed at Indian BO, but it has showed the way to make movies. Accept the change.

Vivek Nanda said...

@KVRAMAN, thanks for visiting here and sharing your thoughts here. I'm glad you found the movie entertaining as me :).Take Care n keep visiting.

Vivek Nanda said...

@Priya, hi and thanks for your detailed thoughts. I'm amazed to see people presenting their views with their hearts out, I'm simply loving it!!
You rightly said that Barbara's Spanish made the movie look different as well as international. Thanks again for visiting my space, take care :)

Vivek Nanda said...

@Rohit, hello and warm welcome here. Thanks for appreciating my review and sharing your detailed views about the Kites. You have summoned everything in your last line- 'Kites may have failed at Indian BO, but it has showed the way to make movies. Accept the change'. Thanks again for visiting here and I hope you keep coming back.

k@ts ! said...

i too saw kites a few days back.... the movie was diff not a typical movie of bollywood... and also the hype was lil more than required ;)... but on the whole it was refreshing experience watching it... i loved it to the core.. the cinematography is too good and "hrithik" rocked the screen :).... the climax was totally unxpected but nice ...at the end i jus want to tell the CRITICS and TYPICAL BOLLYWOOD MASALA WATCHERS ."PLEASE ACCEPT A DIFFERENT MOVIE WITH LOVE"

Vivek Nanda said...

@k@rs!, thanks for sharing thoughts here. Yes agree that there was a bit too much hype but you know big actors come with huge noises :). The USP of the movie is certainly it being different from a typical bollywood. For lot of us it was the most refreshing factor as well. Anyway, thanks for visiting here.

Moun@$ 15's... said...

Vivek Nanda said...

@Moun@$15's
Thank you buddy :), I'm Hrithik will feel proud of your views.

Sorry people for a little aggressive commenting from my friend, but all I publish everyone's opinion :)

Manoj Pahuja said...

Great review Vivek.. Good description of what you felt after watching the movie but I have to say that I did not like the movie at all. The only two things that were good in the movie were Hrithik's dance and the fact that it was shot at beautiful locations. The movie was lacking a story. On the other hand, I believe this movie is definitely a step forward towards making movies targeted towards global audience rather than just to India. I completely agree to the fact that in no time we might find Hrithik in some Hollywood movies as well.

@Manoj, hey thanks for the visit bro...
I'm glad to hear your views, but we agreed that Hrithik is a rockstar and soon he will be there in the hollywood movie. Thanks again for the buddy!!

Vivek Nanda said...

Thanks Anonymous pal, yes is a Greek God :)

Your praise makes me want to see this movie. Someone even posted an ad for it to my blog. And well, the fact that there are passionately different opinions about it tells that it couldn't be very bad, because bad movies are the ones nobody cares to comment on.

Vivek Nanda said...

Dear Anonymous friend, I'm sure you will agree with me that we all can't think alike. So, why don't you go by yourself and watch the movie. May be then you will know you liked it or not, but you nicely mentioned-"bad movies are the ones nobody cares to comment on", so here you go, you can watch it :)

Anuj Mehta said...

Movie sucks just like ur review

anil goyal said...

In the quest to make themovie for global audiences, the makers have let down the Indian audience big time....it is well shot, but the storyline is soooooooo sorry, nthg new, so predictable, just switching past n present to keep one engrossed....hritik stands out,kangana is wasted, barbara unexpolred...too short a run time for a movie, hardly any content....

Vivek Nanda said...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Anuj ;-)

yaar mast pakau movie hai - they weren't able to decide to make a good hindi movie or english movie - anyhow - the intensity they wanted toput in - wsnt upto mark - romance - anyhow unmatchable to any actual romantic flick. if u c , story plot was jst another movie and again it ws looking more of ritesh deshmukh kind of movie. they over did effort by casting hritik and mori. bt bottom line - hritik rocks ! bt movie flops

Vivek Nanda said...

@Anonymous, thanks for sharing your thoughts and visiting my space, I appreciate your views.

Well Vivek,
Those who thought they hated the movie were so aggressive that they didnot want anyone else to see the movie! Why so much anger or hatred? Well, someone is trying to make a diff film and the film for sure has class, believe me once it succeeds abroad, the same critics will go gaga over the movie and suddenly feel proud to be Indians and somehow be associated with the movie.

Vivek Nanda said...

@Anonymous(recent), thanks for sharing your thoughts, and I agree to you that once the picture becomes a success overseas the same audiences locally will start praising. After all, we are like that only. thanks again for visiting here and sharing what you felt. Take care :)
